It is as important for a Casting Director to meet and understand you as a person as it is for them to know about your acting skill.
Casting Directors have many things in common but they also have their distinctive differences. Working with them is the best way to find out how they see the job.
During the briefing sessions at the beginning and end of each workshop you will get practical hands-on advice from the casting directors.
You will be able to ask questions in the two briefing sessions about the personal areas of confusion or concern you have.
In your one-on-one time with television director Richard Sarell you will get direct honest feedback about your audition technique and your acting technique. Sometimes your acting techniques are great but your audition technique doesn't display your strengths. Richard will assist you with clear and practical advice.
Nerves can have a big impact on the outcome of an audition. Making an audition an ordinary experience rather than an exceptional one is a skill that needs to be acquired and practiced.
For an actor a scene must do more than further the plot - it must explore the relationship between the characters. Richard has a gift for making this process clear and simple. His direction gives me confidence to trust my own intuition, thus allowing the character room to breathe...
Over his twenty-five year directing career Richard found that many actors he auditioned didn’t actually listen in auditions. And he realised that it took many years of experience for actors to come to terms with and understand the audition process.
Having a practical understanding of what the actor's job is when auditioning is a massive help in enabling an actor to audition well. These workshops aim to quickly build an actor's understanding of the audition process - which usually takes actors years of professional experience to acquire. There are many myths about auditions and many confusions about what Casting Directors and directors are looking for.
Richard was one of the first acting teachers to begin running workshops that allowed actors to interact with Casting Directors. The aim was to give actors experience of the audition room so that they can approach an audition in a relaxed, focused and professional way.
These are the only workshops where actors also receive analysis and feedback from a director as well as a casting director. This combined input from two different entertainment professionals makes these workshops unique and incredibly valuable.
